Good morning, snowy Brussels! Despite the dangers fosstodon.org/@fosdem/10152177 #FOSDEM starts. Let's now go the "ethics and blockchain" session.

Mitchell Baker speaking without slides (it seems there is a technical glitch). #FOSDEM

Now, Deb Nicholson on "Blockchain: The Ethical Considerations" (first slide: a man working on a giant strawberry)

(I'm disappointed: this big room - Janson - is not full.)

#FOSDEM

Very good talk of Tom Hacohen about the pleasures of developing a really serious privacy-oriented application. #FOSDEM

* everything is done on the client : changing the protocol requires to upgrade all clients
* data is encrypted client-side, the developer never sees the data, so cannot debug data-related issues.
#privacy #endToEndEncryption #FOSDEM

Now, a guy with a french accent on stage. "#GDPR and the right to data portability" #FOSDEM

RFC 171 on screen (about transfer of datas between centralized silos). #RFC #FOSDEM

Now, Veronika Nad on #journalism, and how it could benefit from free software. #FOSDEM

(The room is not full, which is very rare for the Decentralized Internet and Privacy devroom.)

Now, panel about #ActivityPub at #FOSDEM. Christopher Webber, Gualter Barbas Baptista "How many people in the room have read the specification?" [Several hands, including mine] "Wow, that's a lot for a specification."

@bortzmeyer @kjeurbechne we should check the video podcasts or that room ;-)
